On Friday we sold our 50th home to our 75th household, and on Tuesday, October 26 we gathered at home #50 to dedicate a commemorative address plaque designed by the family that sold us the home and crafted by local artisans and supporters of SCCLT.
The address plaque features imagery from the sellers' family history in Centre County (dating back to the late 1700's!) and is crafted from wood salvaged from the State College Diner. Lots of history and community effort put into this house, this plaque, and to creating another first-time homebuyer household in our community. Cheers to 25 years, 50 homes, 75 households and counting!
Thanks to Holly Foy of the Potter's Guild of the Art Alliance of Central PA, Gil Morrison and Joe Kunst for adapting the homesellers' design into this commemorative address plaque.
SCCLT began a prtnership with the Penn State Law in August to place a PSU student as a non-voting member on our Board of Directors. Jeremiah Parlock is a 2nd year J.D. and part of the Leading Lawyers program here at Penn State. You can learn more about Jeremiah in his own words, below.
My name is Jeremiah Parlock, and I was born and raised in Huntington, WV. I graduated from Marshall University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and minors in business management, constitutional democracy, and psychology. I am currently enrolled as a second-year Juris Doctor student at Penn State Law. So far, I have been fortunate to acquire practical legal experience through interning for both a private firm and for the federal judiciary. During the summer of 2020, I interned for a small labor and employment firm in Charleston, WV, Miller & Amos, and during the summer of 2021, I interned with Magistrate Judge William Arbuckle III for the U.S. Middle District of Pennsylvania in Williamsport, PA.
I keep myself busy at Penn State Law where I am a member of the ABA National Appellate Moot Court team, serve as the Phi Delta Phi Legal Honor Society President, Military Law Caucus Secretary, Corporate Law Society Events Chair, and as a Student Bar Association Representative. Immediately following law school, I hope to pursue a path in the JAG corps for one of the military branches (currently undecided as to which branch). I am also interested in corporate litigation and eventually working for a state or federal government as a prosecutor.
As for my personal life, I am an avid ultimate frisbee and disc golf player in my free time. Law school does not afford me much free time, but I play when I can! I am one of ten children, and ultimate frisbee is our family sport that we play annually because it is enjoyable for players of all different skill levels. I am also an Eagle Scout, so I cultivated a passion for outdoor adventuring, such as backpacking, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, and skiing, among other things. It would be hard for me not to mention that I am a fan of all things Pittsburgh, especially the Steelers.
SCCLT began a prtnership with the Penn State Federal Work Study Office in August to place a PSU student whose interests and skills align with ours within our organization for the coming academic year. Please join us in welcoming Laila Hosni, and learn a bit about her in her own words, below.
My name is Laila Hosni and I study finance at Penn State University. In my free time, I enjoy wrestling with the Penn State Club Wrestling team. I decided to get involved with the SCCLT after completing my own search for a place to live in State College. With housing being the largest expense for most families, I am glad to be a part of an organization that helps first-time homebuyers by providing affordable housing.
